Let me tell you all about it...



All aboard for a fast-paced, Jazz Age–era murder mystery set aboard a Chicago-bound train!
It’s 1923, and thirteen-year-old Bobby Lee Claremont is leaving the Sisters of Charitable Mercy
orphanage in New Orleans, certain a better life awaits in Chicago’s glamorous-sounding mob scene. But
his plans unravel when he boards his train and meets the recently widowed Nanette O’Halloran, her two
traveling companions, and a cop who suspects the trio of murdering Nanette’s husband. Bobby Lee is sure
Nanette’s innocent. But what about her companions? As Bobby Lee digs for answers, he discovers the
mob, Prohibition, segregation, and a famed jazz band are all pieces of an increasingly dangerous puzzle.

Stay tuned! Bobby Lee will be coming to a bookstore near you Sept. 5, 2017.
